Health news: A pleasurable side-effect of exercise, how to fudge an athlete’s muscle tone, and water bottles so adorable you’ll be dying to hydrate
This month, we’re reporting on a trend that will take over living rooms everywhere during the Olympics, a sexy new study about the pleasurable side effects of working out and the latest high-intensity workout craze—though get-slim-quick-seekers need not apply. Read on!

But we are a more active audience—at least in terms of communication—now that we take to social media when something momentous occurs. London 2012 is the first Summer Olympics to happen since this phenomenon took hold.

We’ll be sitting back to enjoy the ride—let the Games begin.
